Super Eagles to soar into AFCON finals

A win for either Benin or Nigeria will seal their passage through to next year’s Africa Cup of Nations finals, while a draw may also be enough depending on Saturday’s other result in Group L.

Nigeria currently sit a point clear of Benin at the top of the standings and they boast an impressive record in the head-to-head meetings between the two sides, winning 12 and losing just one of their previous 15 clashes.

That impressive sequence includes a 2-1 victory for the Super Eagles earlier in this group campaign, although that result did buck a trend, as five of Nigeria’s last seven victories over Benin have been to nil.

There certainly does not tend to be too many goals scored in matches involving Benin, as there have been just two across their last three competitive fixtures.

Indeed, Michel Dussuyer’s side have kept four clean-sheets on the bounce since their 2-1 loss to Nigeria at the start of this group campaign.

Les Ecureuils certainly look strong defensively, but they have only kept one shutout in their 15 previous meetings with Nigeria and we predict the Super Eagles will once again prove too good on Saturday.

Our prediction is for Nigeria to win to nil, although our overall score prediction of 1-0 reflects the recent resilience Benin have shown.
